Easter the Lazier Way

Baby girl is still to young to compare notes on how other moms planned a kick-ass Easter day of fun, I went with the least amount of work type of approach.

Some friends came by with their baby girl, boiled eggs, and a painting kit (thanks Frenchs..you totally helped a mama out!)

 Then we filled a few plastic eggs with some candy the hubby picked up from work and walked down with the girls to the apartment courtyard. We placed them in different spots..sat on the patio chairs and watched them ‘hunt’. A 2 year old, a 19 month old, and a 3 year old girl did not so much as hunt as they did meander and finally find the some egg then waste about 3 minutes trying to open it before moving on again. A wild camel race this was not.

This girl was killing it    
I mean this couldn’t be more obvious right

  Really not sure what they were doing here 
It was a fun and easy day with minimal effort and clean up.

We took a short trip to visit the family in the great North. Well not too far North, only the beautifulest of British Columbia.

Oh hey Vancouver.

While there, we saw that my mom’s fence (which was already falling apart) had fallen down. Not to worry, Zahi was feeling particularly Canadian now that he is officially so. He took an axe and a hoe and went to work.

 All he is missing is a plaid shirt, a beanie, a beard, and duck boots and lumberzack would make the best

Lumberzack and his mini their natural element..man I need better photography skills

On why we didn’t throw a party when she turned two

Well a few weeks late but all just the same. Our baby turned two and we had a less than traditional celebration. It has been a whirlwind year already so why not do the things she really enjoyed while making sure we stay sane. So this year she got to:

Visit her favorite park with her bestie and neighbor and we got her a rose and a cupcake

Took her to dinner with her favorite Texans and she finally learned the fun of blowing out candles and made us do it 5 times in a row.

Then little diva got her first trip to the spa. I can’t believe how perfect that decision was because she had the best time.
